In the 1980s, author Jean C. Walsh, a recent widow with four sons, decided to take her ten-year study of Chinese culture and put it to work. She started a consulting business with the objective of helping American business men and women establish connections in China. Throughout the 80s she traveled to China leading trade missions hoping to open markets from Nantung to Beijing. Her story is one of triumph and frustration, as Chinese business practices and American business practices were often at odds with one another. Jean was the bridge that connected the two disparate cultures; both loved by the Chinese people, and respected for her cultural authority by the American business leaders. Jean also took National Geographic-quality photographs on her journeys throughout China, and this coffee table book of her memoirs is an historic document, and a timeless, and evocative testament to one women's strength and savvy in the often enigmatic world of doing business in China.
